On 27 April, the Day of Renewable Energies was held for the 18th time across Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed some unresolved problems in an interview: “On a normal day, we need 65 gigawatts of electricity and now already have over 30 gigawatts of solar power and a good 30 gigawatts of wind power. However, at certain times of the day neither of these two energy sources is available so we need almost the same amount of power from conventional power plants in reserve.”
Haniel already relies exclusively on electricity from renewable energy sources today. Since 1 January 2013, almost all the Group’s locations have been supplied with electricity from generated from wind, the sun, water and biomass. This covers 90% of our energy consumption, which at 43,000 megawatt hours is equivalent to that of 15,000 households and enables 14,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions to be saved each year.
